Jennifer Hudson, Weight Watchers Part Ways
After four years and losing 80 pounds, singer-actress Jennifer Hudson ended her stint as a Weight Watchers spokesperson, Us Weekly reported Saturday.
The American Idol alum first teamed up with the company in 2011 when she was a size 12. She now fits into a size 6. Her departure was a mutual decision.
“After four years of a successful and rewarding partnership, Weight Watchers and Jennifer Hudson are ending our official partnership, though we’re confident Jennifer will remain a Lifetime Member,” a Weight Watchers representative said in a statement.
“Jennifer’s healthy lifestyle and successful weight loss has inspired so many – from her friends and family to our members and staff, as well as people around the world – and we know that inspiration lives on,” the statement continued.
“We will continue to support Jennifer in maintaining her healthy lifestyle and wish her the very best in her personal and professional life,” the statement read.
Weight Watchers also thanked Jennifer Hudson via Twitter Friday.

The 32-year-old Dreamgirls actress admitted in an interview for the December 2012 of Redbook, in which she appeared on the cover, that her transformation was complete.
“But I hear all the time, ‘Don’t lose any more weight; you need to stop.’ People are under the impression that I’m still losing, but I’m not,” said Hudson.
